KCC Home to School Transport Guidance
To qualify for free school transport a child must attend their nearest appropriate school for transport purposes and that school must be over the statutory distance from their home. Free school transport will not be provided where a child only fulfils one of these criteria. The following guidance sets out Kent County Council’s obligations to provide Home to School Transport to children living in Kent who are eligible to receive transport assistance:
The railway station at Sandwich is within easy walking distance of the school. Students can travel south to Deal and Dover, or north to Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate. Trains leave approximately every 30 minutes. Travel is via the Ramsgate to Dover line, operated by National Rail.
